Since we homeschool, I don’t have to worry about packing lunches for my kids, except on the days that we go to co-op. On those days, I have to create a healthy, filling lunch for my kids, which can be a challenge considering our multiple food intolerances.
However, I have found a lunch that is nutritious and fills my kids up. The lunch usually consists of a lunch meat, veggies, and a carb.
For instance, last week, I used Plainville turkey lunch meat with organic leaf lettuce and guacamole rolled inside. For the veggie, I packed baby tomatoes and baby carrots. The carb was homemade chocolate-banana gluten free muffins.

On other days, I pack Nick’s Sticks turkey or beef snack sticks, or diced ham.
Other veggies to include may be cucumber slices, salads, or pepper slices.
I’m glad I don’t have to pack my kids a lunch every day, but for the one time a week that I do, using this formula, packing lunches is a much easier task.
What do you typically pack for your kids, especially if you have to work around food intolerances or allergies?
